The place is charming and cozy, one could say a bit squeezed in. The owners are extremely friendly and proud of their own products. And, they have every right to be so. I feel though that the it is a bit overrated. The prices are a bit steep for what you get. But, guys, this is Amsterdam and the place... More

Amazing cakes, amazing tea, the staff was simply lovely.we have them if they accepted credit\debit cards but they didn't. I suggested to go and withdraw money before even ordering, however the waiter stopped me and asked me to relax and enjoy my piece of cake and tea and worry about the money after! Lovely gesture!!^^

We went to Gartines a little before noon, and it was already all full. We were very lucky to get one last table after a couple left. And after that, the restaurant had to apologize to at least 10 groups of people that they couldn't take anyone anymore because all tables were booked afterwards. The lunch dishes were delicious and... More

I confess we had a bit of a problem finding the restaurant but we are glad that we kept trying until we were successful.We were fortunate to get a table without... More

Found this little gem of a place via Trip advisor back in, September whilst away with my wife visiting Amsterdam, for the sixth time in as many years. Turned up 5 minutes before opening as we did not have a booking and really wanted to try this place. Once seated you really are made to feel at home. The lady... More

We didn't had a reservation, but because the owner was way to nice, he gave us a table where we ate the best authentic dutch dish. P.S. The tea was fabulous

We did reserve a table via our consierge. Whilst there they turned away several unbooked customers. Please book although I understand 4-6 PM is a good time to just turn up. The food won't disappoint. I had the most delicious soup ever and hubby had goats cheese sandwich. It's a very unassuming place but the food is fabulous and the... More

We went to Gartine without a reservation at about half past one and were fortunate to get a table for two. We had the soup of the day and the salmon for mains and a slice of pear cake for dessert (see photos). Arguably one of the best meals we had in Amsterdam. The food was well-cooked and flavourful, using... More

We came here for tea because of the high rating but was disappointed a bit that food is just average. The place is cozy and staff are attentive though.
